India history and geogprahy

1) Prānālaka, Prānālakadeśa or Panalā is the name of a region mentioned in the “British museum stone inscription of the reign of Haripāladeva”. Prānālaka or Panalā is evidently identical with Panhāḷe in the Dāpoli tālukā of the Ratnāgiri District, which was the capital of Southern Koṅkaṇ. (See No. 23, above.)

2) Pranālaka or Pranālaka-durga is the name of a fort mentioned in the “Kolhapur stone inscription of Bhoja II”. The fort of Pranālaka or Pannāle is, no doubt, the modern fort of Panhālā, about 11 miles north-west of Kolhapur.
